Former Steelers OL Doug Legursky Signs With Bills On Wednesday
Former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Doug Legurksy signed with the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday after visiting with them on Tuesday.
Legursky, who was originally signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2008 out of Marshall, spent his first five years in the league with Pittsburgh as a backup center/guard.
In 2012, Legursky started two games at center and one at left due to injuries suffered to both Maurkice Pouncey and Willie Colon during the season.
Despite being the Steelers top interior swing offensive lineman for several years, Legursky\’s play at the guard position was pretty bad in 2012. The Steelers recognized this as well as they had Pouncey start the Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens at left guard so that Legursky could play center after Colon was lost for the season the week prior in the loss to San Diego Chargers.
Legursky plays his best football at center and fully understands the game inside and out. In Buffalo he will most likely back up starting center Eric Wood.
Buffalo has become a landing spot of sorts for former Steelers offensive lineman as Kraig Urbik, Chris Scott and Keith Williams are also all currently on the Bills roster.
